If you’re like me and love sewing and craft, you probably enjoy making your own Christmas gifts so sewing doll clothes to give as gifts this Christmas (or any time at all) is a wonderful idea. The giving of homemade gifts is really personal and means so much more to the recipient as they appreciate the special thought and effort that has gone into creating their gift.
Making your own doll clothes to give as Christmas gifts not only says ‘I love you’, each and every outfit is special because it is unique. Because all my PDF doll clothes patterns come with step-by-step video tutorials, you will also find that it really is quick and easy to make doll clothes. You can literally purchase my pattern in the morning, print the pattern pieces out and make the outfit before morning tea time (or smoko time in Australia)!
Best of all, making your own doll clothes doesn’t cost the earth! While others are spending a fortune buying brand name doll clothes from big department stores, you can save heaps of money making your own because the doll clothes patterns and fabric are inexpensive, especially if you use fabric left over from another sewing project.
I have one customer who has 5 granddaughters and she purchased my How to Sew Doll Clothes online tutorial so that she could make doll clothes for them. She has made up the doll clothes patterns that come with the course and has purchased a new pattern just about every month since finishing the course so she now has a lovely stash of doll clothes to be given as gifts this Christmas. Ann is really looking forward to seeing the excited looks on all her granddaughters’ faces when they open their gifts from her…I can see why she is their favorite grandma!
I also have another customer who has just purchased my How to Make Doll Clothes online tutorial to give her crafty daughter as a Christmas gift. Her Aunty and Grandmother are putting together a ‘sewing essentials kit’ with fabric, elastic, ribbon, thread and little bits and pieces that she can use when making the free doll clothes patterns that come with the course. I think this is an absolutely awesome idea as this family is encouraging their special daughter, granddaughter and niece to learn and enjoy the wonderful craft of sewing.
‘Sew’ become someone’s favorite Grandma, Aunty, or the Best Mum in the World this Christmas and give that someone special in your life, the gift of doll clothes personally made by you or encourage them to learn to sew themselves and give them my ‘How to Sew Doll Clothes’ online tutorial. They will truly love and thank you for it!
I was just browsing through your site and refreshing some of the how to videos and came across this post. Thank you for adding me to your story of sewing doll clothes for Christmas gifts. I made my granddaughters so happy with all of their clothes, and now they’re looking forward to a summer wardrobe. I’ve been collecting all kinds of fabrics and love every minute of sewing. You are such a blessing, and I never would have gotten interested in making doll clothing if I hadn’t come upon your site while just browsing one day. I love your patterns, and especially the videos. I wish I could keep them forever. It would be well worth paying for that privilege. I purchased the swimsuit and printed it out, but can’t find it on my list. Perhaps the 12 months has run out. Time goes by way too quickly. Spring is on our doorstep and I’m sure that means you are entering into your fall season. It seems so odd, in a good way. I just washed and dried a pretty Shamrock pattern fabric but haven’t decided what I will make it into. I’m thinking a cute little blouse made from the pajama top pattern. Just in time for St. Patrick’s day.
Take care, Rosie, and thank you for the joy of sewing again.
My pleasure Ann.
